Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This review does not reflect the quality of the film or Amazon. I purchased the Universal 100th Anniversary edition dvd of Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, assuming it was a new dvd pressing of the hi-def remaster used for the blu-ray. I did this to save some money as I have found that blu-ray editions of older films (pre-'50's) do not look particularly mind-blowing. A proper remaster of a black and white film should look fine on both formats. When I opened this edition I found a disc clearly dated 2000, and indeed the transfer was terrible, scratchy and pixely. It says nothing about the film being restored on the packaging (of course), but when you purchase a dvd in packaging identical to the blu-ray, would you not assume they were taken from the same source? This is pretty deceptive and a lousy way for Universal to treat movie fans. In short, Universal, you suck.

Even though this film came near the end of their movie careers it was still one of their best efforts. This probably had as much to do with the supporting cast as with Abbott and Costello themselves. A correction to the other review here, Glenn Strange played Frankenstein's monster not Boris Karloff.

Format: DVD
kudos must still go tO the universal exec who came up with this.
the film is a loving sendoff/tribute to the universal horror icons and A&Cs best film by far.
Lugosi actuall gives a bette rperfromance here as the count than he did in the original Dracula, which was static and over acted. A lot of crititcs have said that Lugosi played it straight here, but that's not quite true. he draped his cape over his nose
(something, despite the cliches, he never did in the original) and has several great comedic lines ('what we need is young blood and brains'). Lugosi always considered himself a comedian and for once he is given that opportunity, thus blowing away the prevelant attitudes that he was a not so bright actor that didn't know a lick of english and thus 'accidentally' gave an eerie delivery.
Chaney too is very good. he was and remains an underrated actor. watch him tear up in the macabre 'spider babay' or his performance in ' high noon' 'the defiant ones' and 'of mice and men' (of course) to see how great an actor he could really be.
and everything with A & C is perfect here. sadly, they would go way down hill and become tiresome shortly after.
ONE MAJOR COMPLAINT:
the make up of Bud Westmore doesn't hold a candle to Jack pierce.
Universal uncerimoniousely sacked Pierce because he was no longer 'quick enough'.
oh, Westmore was quicker and it shows!

I love this movie...unfortunately, Universal did not take the time to have a pristine print made and transfer something beautiful to DVD. Instead, they must have transferred from some old print they had in their vault, and it shows. It's no better than the VHS tape. I was shocked at how bad, how splotchy the print was. I really expected much more, like a nice beautiful print, and I was eager to see Abbott and Costello like I had never seen them before.....but no.

Format: DVD
I have always loved this film as a kid and have collected many of these Abbott & Costello films on VHS from Universal including the entire classic monster collection. You can't imagine my dissapointment when I watched the DVD expecting to see DVD quality but instead looked at about the same quality as my VHS tape. Why? I have been a loyal customer of Universal's since I was 17. Couldn't they have done a better job on this transfer? The Frankenstein DVD looked great. I was intending to buy all of my favorite Universal classics on DVD but now, will not. Universal, your films and your fans deserve better.

Even after all these years the humour and suspense will give you an evening of entertainment, and many smiles the next day as you think about the antics that make this movie so enjoyable.

I enjoy seeing Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr. and hearing Vincent Price just as much as Bud and Lou's beloved routines. This film never fails to delight and I never fail to get shivers when you see the bats flying in that lady's eyes. Good fun all around. Always makes me laugh. Other films were done with Bud and Lou with other monsters but this one is first and best, imho.
